Us an Dem - Benjamin Zephaniah

Us an Dem
Released 18/05/09. Benjamin Zephaniah is known to most as a poet, a very respected and popular poet. He was listed by the Times newspaper as one of the Top 50 British post war writers and has turned down an OBE. In 1990 he released an album called “Us and Dem” on Mango/ Island, the album contains a mix of his poetry and danceable reggae beats. The songs are political but spiked with humour and a human touch that stop if from sounding preachy. The Cherry Red issue of the album features a 45 minute interview with Iain McNay from Cherry Red TV and a video of the track Us and Dem alongside three tracks that never appeared on the original vinyl issue

Northern Dream
Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the launch of a new imprint, Cocteau Discs, the home of Bill Nelson’s catalogue between 1971 and 2001.

The series of ongoing releases begins with the re-release of Bill’s classic album Northern Dream, recorded on rudimentary equipment at Holyground studios in Wakefield in 1971. One of the first truly independently produced albums to be released in Britain, the album featured wonderful compositions such as Everyone’s Hero, End of the Seasons, Love’s a Way and Smiles . Championed by John Peel, the album paved the way for Bill’s future career with his bands Be Bop Deluxe and Red Noise and for his highly regarded solo career.

Outernational
A timely reissue of Billy MacKenzie's first solo album 'Outernational' plus bonus tracks. William MacArthur "Billy" MacKenzie first came to musical prominence through his involvement in the much loved band The Associates in the early 80's. This was his first album release after the split with fellow Associate, Alan Rankine.
The album was originally released in 1992 on Circa Records.
This CD contains the two singles taken from the album, 'Baby' and 'Colours Will Come'.
The CD features the ten tracks of the original album release and four bonus tracks including mixes/remixes of 'Colours Will Come - US 60659 Mix' by Larry Heard, 'Feels Like The Richtergroove' by Mike Koglin, 'Look What You've Done - Marital Mix' and the beautiful 'Because You Love'.
The CD booklet features an expanded version of the original artwork and includes a detailed UK discography and sleeve notes.
The album has been digitally remastered for this release.
Speaking of the 'Outernational' album to Record Collector magazine in 1994 MacKenzie gave his impression of the album "I think it has a glacial beauty. It doesn't always have to be demonstrative. Fire can burn, but so can ice. And that would direct the attention to the lyrical content as well. Some of it had a lot of religious connotations, like "Colours Will Come". I think that it's an emotionally detached album in some ways, but it also has a strong message. Maybe it appeared like I wasn't trying or expressing, or that there was a block. But it wasn't. There was a calmness and a lot of beauty in that album.
Billy MacKenzie passed away aged 39 on January 22nd 1997 leaving a lasting musical legacy.

Noise Candy: Deluxe 6CD Box Set
•    OFFICIAL REISSUE OF BILL NELSON’s CLASSIC & LONG DELETED SIX CD BOXED SET ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2002
•    RESTORES THE ORIGINAL BOXED SET ARTWORK & BOOK

Esoteric Recordings’ imprint Cocteau Discs are very pleased to announce the re-release of one of the most sought after titles in BILL NELSON’s extensive solo catalogue, the boxed set "NOISE CANDY”.

Originally released in 2002 on the Tone Swoon imprint, the set was available for a matter of months before the distributors ceased to exist. "NOISE CANDY” was a fascinating project that gathered together a host of recordings made by Bill at his various home studios between 1990 and 2000. Featuring 121 tracks, the set comprised 6 CDs of songs and instrumental music, each CD an album in their own right and entitled variously "Old Man Future Blows the Blues”, "Stargazing With Ranger Bill”, "Sunflower Dairy Product”, "King Frankenstein”, "Console” and "Playtime”.

Beautifully designed, "Noise Candy” was one of Bill Nelson’s most involved projects and one of his most memorable. With copies extremely difficult to find, "Noise Candy” has since gained a legendary status amongst Bill Nelson fans. This Cocteau Discs limited edition reissue restores the album artwork and is presented in the same box format as the original 2002 release.

Please Note: This title is released mid January 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.
